ITS REALLY GOOD THAT YOU WANT YOUR KID TO BE A GENIUS. TO BEGIN WITH, YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF HIS NUTRITION. EXCLUSIVE BREAST MILK FEEDING FOR FIRST SIX MONTHS OF LIFE. NOW, FOR HIS PERSONALITY, FIRST SEVEN YEARS OF HIS LIFE ARE VERY IMPORTANT. THESE YEARS WILL DEFINE HIS PERSONALITY. KIDS LEARN MORE THROUGH OBSERVATION IN THIS PERIOD. WHICH MEANS, YOU NEED TO GIVE A VERY HEALTHY EMOTIONAL ENVIRONMENT. YOU NEED DISPLAY THE BEHAVIOR LIKE TRUE GENIUSES HAVE. HOPE THIS HELPS. ALL THE BEST

Refractive errors are common in small children also. If you don't correct them early may result vision loss. So continue glasses as advised by the doctor.

I am going to fly with my 8.5 months old son tomorrow for the first time. The flight is around 1 hour long. Our paediatrician has recommended to give him phenergan 1 hour before take off so that he is ok during the flight but I have my doubts. Is it ok to give phenergan to such a young child?

No need to give any medicine. While taking off and landing baby can have ear ache for which sucking will relieve him either give him breast feeding while taking off and landing or give him a dummy nipple to suck.

Hi Doctor, My daughter is 22 months old. I have a question over her diet. As summers are at peak, my baby is not eating or drinking any thing, she only takes Lactogen- Stage 4, which is a cause of worry for me. She is becoming very weak now a days. As she is not eating properly, she is getting irritated and crying all the time. I request your help to get a solution for her healthy diet during summers. Thank You!

Milk based diet till 22 months is really not good. If you r bottle feeding stop it immediately. Give her regular diet as we eat but with lesser spices. U can give regular cows milk only twice a day in a glass. Bottle is habit forming and has many disadvantages. Particularly in summers give more water. Fluids. Juice. Along with balanced diet.

General Physician,
The problem heer is bottle feeding and you avoid bottle and nipple and feed only breast milk and if you must give formula, feed it with a spoon . The best for your baby is to totally avoid bottle ( not even water )

My baby is 13 months old. He is right now suffering from from infection in saliva gland what will be the best possible way of relief. It is paining him behind his ears.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Salivary gland called Parotid gang is mostly in front and below the ears. It's swelling is known as mumps. Giving Paracetamol should help. Cold compress and giving plenty of liquids to drink also will help. Pain behind the ear may also be due a ear infection or lymph node enlargement due to other infection in the vicinity.

My daughter aged 6 years suffering from epilepsy for four years since then after medical check up and test she is on valparine syrup without fail and she never had seizures after that as well. We were advised that the medicine will run for years. Should we continue with the same.

Pediatrician, Kanpur
I don't know your past history of seizures but if you have given it regularly for 4 years and no seizure, I think you can slowly reduce the dose and stop it with constant watch for some time.

My son who is 3 years old suffering from seizures, I wanted to know any first aid given to him immediately to stop the seizure. First aid taken at home.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
If it's due to fever needs intermittent prophylaxis at the time of fever. If seizures are due to some cause, it has to be rectified. If cause is not known needs longterm anti epileptic therapy.

I have 5 months baby boy. I m breastfeeding my baby and my milk is not enough to my baby. I m feeding cerelac to my baby. How many times should I feed my baby with cerelac in a day?

Postgraduate Programme in Pediatric Nutrition, Diploma in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Standard recommendation is to start foods other than milk only after 6 months of age. If breast milk is not enough as evidenced by slow weight gain, formula milk may be used. If you have already started giving solids, you can either stop and give a milk feed instead or keep it only once per day till after 6 months.

4 Common Diseases that Babies are Susceptible To

4 Common Diseases that Babies are Susceptible To

Infants often suffer from certain diseases which need proper care and timely treatment for quick recovery. At times, it can be difficult to communicate with an infant and understand his/her needs and problems but with a close observation you will surely be able to detect any alteration in the baby's behavior and sense it when he/she is ill. Here are some of the most common diseases infants are susceptible to and what you can do about them.

1. Abdominal distension
It is normal for a baby's belly to stick out after he/she has been fed, but if between feedings there is swelling in the abdomen or it feels hard, it can be an indication of a problem. If this symptom is accompanied by vomiting and absence of bowel movements for more than two days, your baby may be suffering from abdominal distention. This condition may have been caused by swallowing of extra air by the baby while crying or feeding. In such a situation, a pediatrician should be consulted for proper diagnosis and treatment.

2. Jaundice
It is common among newborns to develop mild forms of jaundice as the undeveloped liver is often not able to eliminate the chemical bilirubin from the blood. Mostly, this situation proves to be harmless till the level of bilirubin reaches a certain limit. After that, the disease must be properly treated to avoid damage to the baby's brain or nervous system.

3. Rsv infection
Rsv or respiratory syncytial virus is responsible for causing respiratory problems among infants. Rsv infection usually affects the bronchial passage and shows symptoms like cough, runny nose and mild fever which may even lead to bronchitis. Moreover, this infection may also develop into viral pneumonia, which makes it more important to consult a pediatrician if your baby shows any of the above symptoms.

4. Diarrhea
Infants are susceptible to watery bowel movements due to the action of virus, allergens, specific medications or bacteria. If you observe that your baby is passing stools more often than usual and it is watery, then it may be a case of diarrhea. Sometimes, these symptoms are accompanied by high fever, abdominal pain, lethargy, vomiting, dry eyes and mouth etc. In this situation you should consult your pediatrician and focus on replacing the fluids your baby has lost, to prevent dehydration.

If you have not yet started weaning, do it now to start with semi solids nutritious with added ghee n dairy milk with spoon not bottle. Continue breastfeeding. Watch for green stool to change its colour. Expected wt at this age is about 8 kg.
